21 FebStarting Coconut Geranium From Seed

The seeds of Pelargonium grossularioides are tiny. The easiest way to grow them is to sprinkle them on the surface of your pre-moistened growing medium. Mist the surface to bring the seeds into full contact with the soil. Place your seed tray (or pot or margarine bowl) into the magical high-tech greenhouse known as a ziploc bag. No more watering while you wait for your seeds to “hatch”.
